Welcome to Equestrian Games UK Limited (EGUK), which is for those of you starting out on your first steps to mounted games, or experienced members of clubs or organisations.
We know that there are riders wanting value for money, a lovely event with family and friends and a good quality competition – rewarded at the finals. Events that are a maximum 2-3 hours away in the south, rather than 5-6 hours north. Pony Club offers the most amazing opportunities to riders young and older, and we would be the first to promote this organisation. For those wanting or needing a “next step” approach of training, we want to be able to support riders, ponies and parents on this journey, but at the same time as enjoying a family weekend, with a competition and practice at an affordable price.
We are very fortunate to have a loyal following of local members and for that we want to say a huge “thank you”. We like to be unique and individual, offering practice at area to international level for individuals, pairs and teams with support and training too if required – we’re proud of what we can offer and will continue to develop with our sponsors for the future of our sport and continue to promote all levels of ability. We have already filled our residential camp, which was such a great success last year.
Our events are planned in advance, not to clash with other major events, not to be priced to make a profit (as we have no wages to be paid), nor to bring any other organisation down, it is merely to give children (and adults) on ponies the ability to compete more locally within the sports they love.
We welcome riders and their families of all abilities from the tiny tots on lead reins to budding international riders. Encouraging individuals, possibly without a “pair or team”, to get one with our help. Rosie will keep a base list of riders looking for new “ring friends” – to get you started or get you more experience.
With kind regards
Jo Morris, Rosie Thornton, Claire Hawkins, Annie Morris, Kate Morris
